How Battery Storage Can Benefit Your Business

Blog | December 1st, 2022

Solar battery storage has several financial and environmental advantages in commercial applications and is becoming more and more common, but how do you know if a solar battery could benefit your business? 

First of all, there are a few initial factors to consider:

  1. Does your solar system produce enough energy to charge a battery (this is indicated by how much power you are sending back to the grid) or if not, do you have the available roof space to expand your system?
  2. Do you need backup power in the case of outages, and/or
  3. Does your business need power when the sun isn’t shining?

While it’s not always quite as clear cut as this, if you answered yes to one or more of these questions then a solar battery might be suitable for you. 

So, what are the benefits of commercial battery storage? The main benefit of adding a battery to your commercial solar PV system is that it allows your business to utilise more of the energy produced by your solar panels, rather than sending it back to the grid, which in turn maximises your electricity savings.

Some of the other benefits of commercial solar batteries include:

  • Backup power in case of outages – battery storage can provide coverage for your business during blackouts so you can continue operating.
  • Enhances environmental credentials – storing energy and using it later means you are reducing your carbon emissions significantly more than if you were selling your energy to the grid.
  • Energy arbitrage – shifting to stored energy in the battery when grid electricity is at its peak further saves on energy costs.
  • Network stability – reducing grid congestion by discharging when load is peaking for the entire electrical grid.
